Editorial Review

White rappers generally divide into two camps: the Beastie Boys disciples and the House of Pain clique. For the former, honky hip-hop has nothing to do with the African-American experiences that gave birth to the rap form; rather, it is borrowed to express the middle-class, often suburban, ennui that comes from too much pop culture and too much time on one's hands. In the latter, groups attempt to co-opt the Afrocentrism and identity worship from black rap and use it as a template for their own particular ethnic trumpeting--Irish, in HOP's case.On their debut album, Use Your Fingers, Bloodhound Gang make it clear which group they expect to be confused with: "No, I'm not the guy from the Beastie Boys!" yells Jimmy Pop (or is it his partner Daddy Long Legs?). Hailing from suburban Philadelphia, BG are a self-contained frat party dying to offend anyone who'll listen with their often hilarious, in-your-face political incorrectness. They fight for their right to be moronic throughout--whether worshiping Rip Taylor or invoking the Cavity Creeps from an old toothpaste ad.It's not all just fat-chick and cripple jokes, though: BG back up their obnoxious idiocy with some fairly wise musical maneuvering. While their age and background lead them to repeatedly mine the '80s for material--Duran Duran and Cure samples, Michael Jackson and Blondie interpolations, a "Kids in America" cover--their sly comments and ingenious a cappella snippets prove they're surprisingly sharp and able lads. --Roni Sarig ...

2-0 out of 5 stars NOT TO GOOD
After hearing the hooray for boobies album and loving it i purchased use your fingers, its no where near as good as hooray for boobies. Some of the tracks are just stupid. Not stupid in a good way like hfb, stupid in a bad unfunny way. Some of the songs and skits made me laugh but most arnt funny.
1.Rip Taylor is god- first time i heard it didnt laugh , after i listened to it a couple times i laughed. 3 out of 5 stars
2.We are the knuckleheads-this song sounds like beastie boys- 3 stars

4.bhgpsa- another short skit/1 star
5.Mama say- pretty good- 3.9 stars
6.Kids in america- i really liked this one/another good one- 4 stars
7.Youre pretty when im drunk-not to good , no instruments just them using thier mouths for beats and rapping dumb song- 1 star
8.the evils of placenta hustling- a skit- all it is knocking on a door sounds like carmans voice from south park saying have you seen my wifes placenta its about 10 seconds long. 2 stars

9.One way- another song thats sounds like beastie boys- 3.5 stars
10.S****y record deal- a skit with them singing songs from 80's tv shows in a annoying screaming voice/ sounds like a really bad version of axel rose- 3 stars

Overall about 2.5 to 3 stars though some tracks stand out and are good but majority of album isnt.

3-0 out of 5 stars Worst Bloodhound Gang CD
While it may have a few tracks that I absolutely love, this album is definatley the worst of them all. Jimmy Pop's lyrics are all up to par on cleverness, but either the second vocalist (Daddy Long Legs) or the heavy hip hop influence on the sound of the music makes this CD the black sheep of The Bloodhound Gang's awesome releases. The few tracks that are really good on this album are, 'Mama Say', 'You're Pretty When I'm Drunk', and the covers of 'Kids In America' and 'KIDS Inc.' If you are a fan of The Bloodhound Gang's latter material, be skeptical in buying 'Use Your Fingers'.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as some of their newer stuff.
I hear many people say that this album is only for "true Bloodhound Gang fans" and that "MTV Bloodhound Gang fans will hate this". I don't even watch MTV, and I also hate to disappoint those that say that, but this album really isn't something to be very proud about. Most of this album is just filled with pointless skits that don't even make sense or aren't funny at all. I also hated how most tracks were just filled with what seems like the band just shouting the same word at the same time (If you want to know what I mean, just listen to the chorus of "Rang Dang" and I think you'll know what I'm talking about). The only songs I really enjoyed were "Coo Coo Ca Choo" and "No Rest For The Wicked". Then there are a couple of decent songs too.

If you want to hear a great Bloodhound Gang CD, then get "Hooray For Boobies" or "One Fierce Beer Coaster". They both show how a group can improve from a lousy album like this. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good album and great fun
HIM plays hard rock with a touch of pop and glam. Not the most groundbreaking band around, HIM still manages to produce very catchy tunes that will stick in your head for quite some time.

The songs are structured around basic guitar riffs and also some keyboards. Singer Ville Valo has a decent deep voice and sells the songs very well. The lyrical content is women, love and death - similar to Type O Negative. Strange in some way, it works well with the music and is entertaining.

Overall this band has some commercial potential and could be a good replacement to the nu-punk and metal trash that's been floating around for the last several years. I recommend this album to all fans of rock music and to those who are tired of current nu-rock-metal.

5-0 out of 5 stars The TRUE definition of Gothic Music
As you may or may not know, the term "gothic" was born from the literary and artistic Romantic movement in the 19th Century. So naturally, when one thinks about Gothic music, one also should find the romantic element as well.

Razorblade Romance is genuinely Gothic. HIM mixes the elements of tragedy and romance as well as Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet, the two intertwined until the end. Ville Valo's deep lethargic voice sends the words straight to the heart while a guitar mimics the lyric's sentiment with its riffs.

I bought this album a month ago after hearing "Gone with the Sin" on the radio. Since then, Razorblade Romance has remained on the top of my "Most Played" list and has led me to buy all of HIM's previous albums.

For those of you who think that Marilyn Manson and NIN are the definition of "gothic," LISTEN UP! Lend an ear to this Finnish band and I promise that you won't be disappointed. For those of you who are suckers for romance and deep voices (myself included) this should DEFINATELY be on your "To Buy" list! :)

PS: To learn more about this awesome band, go to their web site at ...!! :)

5-0 out of 5 stars Really excellent and underrated!
I was exposed to CKY through the CKY2K and CKY videos, which are hilarious, and I finally got around to picking up Vol. 1. It quickly became one of my favourite CD's of all time. Their sound is original, filled with innovative gritty riffs; Deron and Chad are very talented guitarists who think up stuff other bands wish they were creative enough to play. The music draws influences from many genres, grunge, alternative, even a tiny bit of techno, as in the beginning of Human Drive In Hi-Fi. The drumming is hard and consistent and really helps give the music drive. They also have a great range of vocals. Some of my favourite songs are Sara's Mask, where they use a softer sound as effectively as they do a hard one, the opening track 96 Quite Bitter Beings, which has really tight guitars and bass, Disengage the Simulator, My Promiscuous Daughter.. hell, all of the songs are good. This is one of the few CD's I can listen to all the way through without skipping anything. CKY definitely has enough talent to hold their own against all the other mass produced bands out there and I hope they'll start getting the attention and credit they deserve!

5-0 out of 5 stars Breath of fresh air.
This album is truly one of the most innovative and powerful discs of the new millenium thusfar... a record that sounds destined to stand the rigors of time, 10, 15 years from now. CKY is a return to old school riff rock without sounding old school at all, a band operating on their own terms and procedures in an era where music is based on fickle trends and industry paychecks. Every song on Volume 1 sounds equally inspired and original, strong enough to stand alone or make an impact within the context of the CD.

96 Quite Bitter Beings kicks things off with a riff that is already considered classic (the Jackass shopping cart song, kiddies), and the onslaught rages forth until the last chord. Volume 1 manages to be diverse without sounding jagged, every song blending seamlessly. Deron Millers voice, while not particularly outstanding, provides the perfect vehicle for the hypnotic vocal hooks and subdued lyrical delivery that weave in and out of Chad Ginsburg's bombastic wall of sound production techniques and what-if-Jimmy-Page-was-in-Rage-Against-the-Machine riffs. Yet CKY's sound remains elusive and always fresh.

From the ethereal beauty of Disengage the Simulator and the beautiful Sarah's Mask to the horns up furor of Rio Bravo and Promiscuous Daughter, Volume 1 deserves to be heard. There is still room for improvement and if rough demos are any indication, the next chapter in the CKY saga shall do just that. 5 out of 5.

5-0 out of 5 stars IDR is good but this is better
I first heard about CKY from the 411 skate videos, there was a section with escape from hellview and i immediately went out and got the infiltrate-destroy-rebuild album. After i wore it down from a million listens, I did some more research on the band and discovered their first album volume 1, which is less polished than IDR but still sounds huge. Each song on this album has a personality of its own, and after you spend time with it you realize its better than IDR which is a daring thing to say because IDR is perfect. But as perfect as IDR is, its hard to top songs like 96QBB and disengage the simulator...The best 2 songs CKY ever wrote in my opinion. But get both albums and make the decision for yourself. Either way, you can't go wrong because its CKY. One of the best rock n roll bands out right now. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Goood stuff
This album may be more special to those fans who exclusively got first dibs on it and got to purchase it directly from band or cast members, in some cases autographed, when it first came out almost two years ago (I'm one of them, yay!). But for anyone who missed out and is considering buying it, go for it; it's still worth it. CKY makes some *really good* music, simple as that. They have a unique sound and attitude, and Volume 2 is kind of a taste of their early work thrown into the mix of more recent, updated re-rcordings. The in-between tracks and pre-song antics, which include clips of skits from the first CKY video Landspeed (like Bam singing "Dead or Alive" and Bran's "Legends of Football") are hilarious and definitely add to the overall appeal of CKY. Maybe if you're not already a CKY fan and you've just randomly discovered this album, it'd be a little hard to get into (since it's not really an album but a compilation requiring somewhat of a knowledge on the background of the band); plus some of the prank phone calls on the second disc are a little weak (sorry!)... But for the most part Volume 2 rocks.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great buy for CKY fans.
CKY Volume 2 is a very great album to buy if you are a big fan of CKY. If you are a newbie to CKY though and want to buy one of their albums, you should start off with Infiltrate Destory Rebuild or Volume 1 first. Not that this is bad or anything, but its more for the hardcore fans. Now, this is a great collection of prank phone calls, remixes, b sides and rare songs. It is over two hours long and it is all on two awesome discs. My personal favorite is the prank phone calls disc. It is absolutely hilarious! This is easily the funniest cd I have ever heard. Theres also some good music on here too. Some songs included are Bran's Chinese Freestyle, Santas Coming, Drunken Freestyle, and of course, over 60 (woah!) others. This is worth the money. I listein to it every day! So go check it out. Wow, CKY has never disapointed me yet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic
CKY has lots of experience with music making, and it really shows on this album. Not only does it include some of their best songs, but showcases their demos, b-sides, instrumentals, and remixes. Mixed between tracks is some great soundtrack work from CKY Landspeed and CKY2k that will have you chuckling the whole time. The second disc is an album of prank calls done by the hilarious Brandon DiCamillo. All of these factors make for an awesome and well-balanced album that will have you rocking for months. Stop reading this review and go buy CKY Volume 2, you'll love it. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Sophomoric but occasionally amusing, the Bloodhound Gang's third outing serves up a dash of Cake, a sprinkling of Blink 182, and heavy doses of metal, hip-hop, and techno. And that's not even mentioning the Pink Floyd rip and Falco sample! Underneath the juvenile, jokey lyrics ("It's hard to rhyme a word like vagina") and cheap chortles (the faux-country "A Lap Dance Is So Much Better When the Stripper Is Crying" being one prime example) are a few memorable melodies. "The Bad Touch" is a catchy, sample-heavy, danceable sex song that name-checks numerous pop-culture touchstones, from Waffle House to the Discovery Channel. Metallica and Frankie Goes to Hollywood samples meld in the rap-metal "Mope." An ode to adult film actress Chasey Lain is yet another perverse novelty entry on this schtick-a-song offering. Yes, there are some guilty chuckles to be found here, but ultimately this 18-track outing is only truly titillating if you're 12--or act like you are. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Hey, it's entertainment! 3.5 stars.
I got this CD from a friend, I guess the name of the CD sort of caught my eye :) and I had seen the Bad Touch video on MTV, and I thought it was pretty funny. I got this expected stupid music with pretty much no musical talent. Actually, these guys are decent at their instruments and the lyrics are pretty crafty. If you have s sense of humor or if you are into comedic music you should buy this CD. It's nothing groundbreaking and it shouldn't be taken seriously by any man, woman, or child, but it's worth your time to listen to. The music on this CD would probably fit into a rap-metal sort of category overall, even though the guitars are pretty light. The only really downer on this CD is "Down on This" because it's really just a bad attempt to be funny. My favorite songs are "I Hope You Die", "The Inevitable Return of the Great White Dope", "3.14", and "Bad Touch."

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Bloodhound Gang album to date
On the first listen, way back in 7th grade, upon hearing the first uttered lyric of 'I Hope You Die', I knew this band had something special. Some four years later, I still regard this CD as one of my favorites. Jimmy Pop has a way with words that I have yet to see in any other band. Though they are immature, crude, and sometimes over the top, they remain some of my favorite lyrics to quote. Whether it's "But would I be a good Messiah with my low self-esteem? If I don't believe in myself would that be blasphemy?" from 'Hell Yeah' or "Bet I can take a hint better than I can take a hit; Completely incompatible though I'm a (...) and you're a (...)." from 'Right Turn Clyde' Jimmy Pop is one of the best lyricists of our time. If you're a fan of comedic and crude rock, then this album's definately for you. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Like their white-trash Pennsylvania homeboys in Ween and Dead Milkmen, Bloodhound Gang are offensive, rude, stoopid, and vigorously gutter-minded, but they're better off for knowing what they are. And having admitted it, they also happen to be surprisingly clever and pretty damn funny. The group's second album, One Fierce Beer Coaster (yes, the cover is designed as a beer coaster--a nod to the band's frat-boy constituency), is full of smart lines, great hooks, and creative arranging. Not one of the record's 10 originals misses its mark.Unlike Bloodhound Gang's 1995 debut, Use Your Fingers, which was essentially a sample-heavy rap album with rock tendencies, Beer Coaster features a new backing band for more of a live rock sound, with muscle-bound funk touches and rapping (think 311 or Cake). But while the new Gang members are perhaps more in tune with current rock radio styles, Jimmy Pop remains an MC at heart--enough so, at least, to cover Run-DMC's "It's Tricky" and then duet with Vanilla Ice (on "Boom") and ape Ol' Dirty Bastard. If you doubt his mic skills, check the rapid-fire U.S. tour in "Going Nowhere Slow": Pop names 72 cities in under 30 seconds.Overshadowing both music and vocal chops, though, are the lyrics. Full of TV namedropping (Emmanuel Lewis), shopping lists (No-Doz, Rolos), and gleeful juxtapositions (Jack Kerouac and Gilbert Gottfried in the same line), Pop's rhymes are dense enough to be topical as well: various songs cover feminine hygiene, suicide as population control, acting gay as a way to meet women, and so on. The humor is a guilty pleasure for the politically incorrect. As Jimmy says, "I'm an Alka-Seltzer ... You're a sea gull"--and if you get the joke, you deserve to hear the rest of the record. --Roni Sarig ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Wow...
Alright, so I became a Bloodhound Fan after becoming addicted to "The Bad Touch". But, after hearing Horray for Boobies, I wanted to see this band's other music. Well, Use Your Fingers was a tad disappointing, but that's only because Daddy Long Legs was writing along with Jimmy Pop. "Fierce", however, is the perfect redemption. This CD is awesome, with tons of great songs you'll be singing like crazy! Fire Water Burn, Lift Your Head, Nowhere Slow, Queer, all are great songs. So, why only 4 stars? Simple; Boom. Boom is a collaboration with Rob Van Winkle, and to tell you the truth it does not fit into the scheme of the CD. Sure, the rhyming will blow you away, but it's not that captivating of a song. Other than that, everything is great, just like the band...great! Oh, and yes Your Only Friends is long, but it is really funny! Jimmy Pop is a genius, probably the best white rapper you'll come across. Now, let's hope the new DVD doesn't ruin their reputation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and Catchy
Just looking at the song listing of this CD should be an indication of how good it is. First of all, the music has enough hooks to keep you interested until you learn the lyrics. Once you know what Jimmy Pop is saying though, you'll really start to see the genius that is The Bloodhound Gang. If you are offended, you really need to stop taking yourself, and your life way too seriously. The Bloodhounds don't take ANYTHING seriously, especially themselves, and thats what makes this album so good. The strange part is that Jimmy Pop actually has flow and the reason his lyrics are so amusing is because they are so clever. Anyone who has a soft spot for the ...80's will really enjoy this album a lot. I mean, how many albums can you name that mention Stryper, Crystal Pepsi (remember that horrible stuff?), Judas Priest, Hans Solo, and Emmanual Lewis in just the first 3 songs? The music is an interesting blend of hard riff-rockers and obscure samples, a mix that matches the weird subject matters perfectly. And can you go wrong with any album that has a guest appearance by Vanilla Ice? So buy this album and loosen up a bit.

5-0 out of 5 stars A heckuva comeback
No one ever made a greater comeback than the Bloodhound Gang with One Fierce Beer Coaster, a year after bombing every way imaginable with Use Your Fingers. It features an even balance of rock 'n' roll with hip-hop, especially noticeable in "Boom," which features Rob Van Winkle a.k.a. Vanilla Ice.

The songwriting has taken a dramatic turn for the better; even though the lead vocalist Jimmy Pop, who has gone solo thanks to the departure of Daddy Long Legs, retains his witty, devil-may-care attitude, he doesn't try quite as hard to cram two hundred lines into each verse, as was the case in Use Your Fingers. But he's still a darn good rapper for a white guy: check out verse 2 on "Goin' Nowhere Slow."

Surprising is the cover of Run D.M.C.'s hit song, "It's Tricky," which works surprisingly well with the band's new heavy metal edge. Other metallic moments include the opening guitar hook on "Kiss Me Where It Smells Funny" and the upbeat riffs of "Goin' Nowhere Slow." The last track, "Reflections of Remoh," which is thankfully the only "non-song" on the album, features Jimmy Pop doing a fairly good impression of Homer Simpson. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars "Ice-T" rocks!
You've got to give "Ice-T" credit. After he became the O.G. of the rap game, he went and put together a rap-metal band. I wont say this album started any kind of movement, but it is one of the early groups of the genre. This of course had all the "Cop Killer" controversy in 1992, and the track was eventually removed. The funny thing is how hardcore alot of the other lyrics are, so I guess it's ok to kill your own mother, just not cops. Anyway, even without that track, it's still a killer album. "Ice" even tries singing on "The Winner Loses", which is a really cool, ballad type song. Overall, it's a really good album, and a real sign of the times.

5-0 out of 5 stars EVEN THOUGH ''COP KILLER'' IS MISSING, THIS STILL ROCKS!
THIS IS THE CLASSIC CD WHICH ONCE HELD THE CONTROVERSIAL ''COP KILLER''. BUT, JUST MONTHS AFTER ITS RELEASE, ''COP KILLER'' WAS PULLED OFF THE ALBUM, AND THAT TRACK WAS REPLACED WITH A ROCK REMIX OF ''FREEDOM OF SPEECH''. NONETHELESS, THIS IS STILL A GREAT HEAVY METAL CD. SURE, THE LYRICS DON'T LOOK LIKE ANYTHING SPECIAL, BUT IF YOU LISTEN TO IT, YOU'LL WANNA BOP YO HEAD ALL DAY. THE BEST SONGS ON THE ALBUM ARE ''KKK B*TCH'', A SONG THAT ATTEMPTS TO SAY THAT INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIPS ARE NOT A BAD THING. ''EVIL D*CK'', A SONG ABOUT SEX. ''BODY COUNT'S IN THE HOUSE'', ALTHOUGH THIS SONG REALLY DOESN'T HAVE TOO MUCH LYRICS TO IT, IT JUST ROCKS. AND THE SONG THAT WAS PULLED OFF THIS ALBUM, ''COP KILLER'', AGAIN, EVEN THOUGH THERE ISN'T MUCH TO THE LYRICS, THE SONG REALLY ROCKS AND IT HAS A SERIOUS MESSAGE ABOUT CROOKED COPS. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT ALBUM. VERY FEW OTHER BLACK BANDS HAVE THE IMPACT THAT THIS BAND HAS. OH, AND KEEP IN MIND THAT THE FRONTMAN FOR THIS BAND IS ICE-T. THIS ALBUM IS GREAT, BUT, THE UNCUT VERSION THAT HAS ''COP KILLER'' IS A RARE, MUST-HAVE ALBUM. EITHER VERSION OF THIS ALBUM IS PERFECT, BUT, THE VERSION THAT HAS ''COP KILLER'' IS THE BEST VERSION. A TRUE CLASSIC. FOLLOWED BY BORN DEAD.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Very Fine CD
I don't really know if Body Count are well-known out there in the US, but I just know one thing: they're good. Way before Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park mixed rap with rock (well, a little while after Run DMC with Aerosmith's "Walk This Way"), they did the same thing, and sometimes even better, if you ask me. Ice-T was "in front of his time"...
What you'll find here is rap-like lyrics with, instead of rap beats, guitars, basses and drums. And it works.
My favorite songs in here are "KKK B****", "Smoked Pork", "Voodoo", "The Winner Loses" and "Body Count".
What's bad about this CD is that many of its lyrics are dumb and some songs don't quite work. If it wasn't for that, it would surely be a 5-star. Actually, I'd give this CD a 3.5 star, but since they were one of the first to mix rock with rap, I think they do deserve 4 stars. If you like Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and other rap/rock bands out there, you should really listen to this. If you don't like, you should too. Peace out! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Sophomore Slump Blues
BC's 1994 sophomore follow-up to their 1992 "killer" debut, suffers from the annoying "sophomore slump blues". And that is no lie. Where their 1992 debut is the perfect metal concept story about life and death on the streets of LA. Their Born Dead flow does have a cohesive, consistent flow like their debut, meaning there are some unmemorable tracks here and does not have the finesse of their debut. The CD starts off with another BC sing-along-anthem Body M/F Count. There it's the lackluster rhythms of Masters of Revenge, Killin Floor, and Necessary Evil. All 3 tracks are on the pedestrian
metal sound. Drive-by is a spoken word interlude, Last Breath is decent. There's an unnecessary cover of Hey Joe that is an exact replica of Jimi Hendrix. Surviving the Game is a strong tack, and the record ends on a positive note with Street Lobotomy and Born Dead. I'd imagine Body Count just wanted to make an all-out metal record. They did do that, but Body Count
sounds uninspired and without taking the subject matter to a certain subject, which we know Ice-T is capable of, the music suffers from the bland lyrical content. This is the weakest release in the BC cannon. Move on the Violent Demise: The Last Days instead.

5-0 out of 5 stars light like DeBussy, with overtones of Stravinsky
I was very often moved to tears by "Body Count". Not since the Beatles has anything been so refreshing, nay startling, in its efferescence and unadulterated musical joy. I think Mr. Ice should consider moving into the realm of modern Gospel music, such is the depth and profundity of his glorius music. If I were getting married, I can think of no more appropriate music for a wedding march or, for that matter, great background music for the honeymoon night. Mr. Ice has, with this record, taken his rightful place with Errol Garner, Hoagy Carmichael,Irving Berlin Leonard Bernstein and the like as one of this century's truly immortal composers. I played the record at a recent meeting of the Proud Young Americans For Truth and was completely overcome by the exhaust fumes issuing from all the dead bodies bubbling up out of the swamp. Oh, the beautiful melodies!! Oh, the emotion!! Oh, the oil plug on a 1965 Volkswagon "bug". Mr. Ice should be President of the United States in my opinion. No one could possibly be more qualified. This record has changed my life forever. Mr. Ice will, no doubt, soon be canonized and take his proper place with St. Francis and Mother Teresa. Every family in the U.S. should be required by law to play this record before dinner every night. Just think of the positive effect it would have on the youth of America!!! Pass me the beaker, Dr. Foley, if you please. I'll have to stop here. I am overcome with emotion just thinking about the illustrious Mr. Ice's gorgeous recording and my tears are starting to short out my computer keyboard. Oh the humanity!!!! Oh the humanity!!!! ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Well... The Other Body Count Stuff Is Much Better
Hmm... while the intro reminds of the cop-killer intro of the first cd, the rest kinda lacks the kicking vocals and music of the other 2 albums... the best song is "My Way" which is actually one of the best BC songs, also not bad are "You're Fu**in' with BC" and "Violent Demise", but still i miss the power and agression of the first 2 albums. so go for "Cop Killer (which now is censored and called "Body Count") or "Born Dead" ...

4-0 out of 5 stars 4.5 STARS
This CD would be perfect if it didn't have the songs "Buggley Eyes", and "Straight Edge"(a cover of a Minor Threat song, cool punk band) The other songs are all great. This is the first NOFX CD with El Hefe, and you can deffinately here a difference in how the music sounds, it's so much better. It has some nice ska songs like Johny Appleseed, and some great punk songs like Stickin In My Eye. Here's how I would grade every song:

(1)Soul Doubt: A...(2)Stickin In My Eye:A...(3)Bob:A...(4)You're Bleeding:B...(5)Straight Edge:C...(6)Liza And Louise:A...(7) The Bag:A...(8)PPTSOTR:A...(9)Warm:A...(10)I Wanna Be Your Baby:A...(11)Johny Appleseed:A...(12)She's Gone:A....(13)Buggley Eyes:C

Great CD!!! GO BUY IT!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars real punk

4-0 out of 5 stars Great album
NOFX are just funny. This is a really solid punk album. I first heard bob and a Punk compilation I have. I really liked it, so i found out about the album it was on and got it. It's really good. The only let down is Straight Edge, cause I'm not a big cover song fan. It's unique though. Jonny Appleseed is a cool song. I recommend this to anyone ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Classic EP
Fishbone began their career correctly with this smoking EP. "Ugly" is a good song, with the sophmoric lyrics that pop up at least a couple times per every Fishbone disc. "Another Generation" is a good midtempo song which songs Fishbone's more serious side, "?" is a disposable novelty, "Party At Ground Zero" is a rock classic, truly a seriously great party song. "V.T.T.L.T.F.D.G.F" is a good rock song, and "Lying" is a funny ska song to close things out.

4-0 out of 5 stars BONE IN THE USA
Truly Bone in the USA, I go back to 1986 with this CD to my days as a DJ for my college radio station. I took it to the next level seeing Fishbone live three times from Raleigh, NC (Hot 'lanta) to St. Louis, MO (Mississippi Nights). I was taken by the fact that they were something I had longed for all my life, a black band that was not afraid to rock.....Blending rock, funk, reagge, and ska with irreverent socio-political undertones this band can best be described as an American version of Madness. Going one step further and giving them their full credit every band which has followed (Living Color, Mighty Bosstones, No Doubt and Red Hot Chili Peppers) all trace their roots back to this EP.

4-0 out of 5 stars An Underground Classic
After forming in 1978, this was Fishbone's first release. Forget about the short ska phase the music scene went through back in 98-99 - Fishbone was doing it WAY before with this album. And it's not just ska; it's fun, raw, energetic, and humorous rock. "Party At Ground Zero" has historically prooved the success of this album. You've probably heard it on the radio or in the background of some television show or movie. The same can be said of Fishbone - they've lingered just under the nose of mainstream rock and roll (which is probably better for the longevity of the band). People new to Fishbone will probably like this album or "Truth and Soul" best. But this is one party album that belongs in everyone's upbeat collection. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It looks like the joke's on you!
After putting together two entertaining and intriguing albums ("Carnival of Carnage" & "Ringmaster"), ICP found their formula and hit their creative peak with this masterpiece. "Riddlebox" is the ultimate ICP album. On the 3rd Joker's Card J and Shaggy deliver a hip hop album with so much punch it could crack somebody's ribs if they were turned sideways while this CD was playing. Outrageously funny at times, and psychotic all the way through, the album hits hardest after the track 'Lil' Sumpin' Sumpin'' ends. The final four songs (especially the haunting song "12", which is arguably ICP's best song ever) create the dark mood that best describes the world of the Juggalos and the Dark Carnival, and sets the stage for the 4th Joker's Card, "The Great Milenko". And as for some people saying ICP can't put out good music like Korn or Limp Bizkit? Just check out the remix of "Chicken Huntin'" which came out the same time Korn's first album did, and WAY before L.B. Finally, I will say that if you don't own "Riddlebox", or have never heard it, you will never truly understand yourself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dark, funny, and brilliant.
This is Insane Clown Posse's 3rd installment of their series of 6 Joker's Cards. A lot of people would call Riddlebox ICP's best album. Some would say this is where ICP is at their creative peak. I would have to agree with that. Many of the songs are some of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope's best work. The coolest songs on this cd are "The Show Must Go On", "Cemetary Girl", and "12". "I'm Coming Home" is personally my favorite track by ICP. The Insane Clown Posse can write some unique rap songs because they rap about a variety of different things. Things like dead bodies, toys, and beating down rednecks. I suggest that you buy all of the Joker's Cards or anything by ICP because everything they put out is phat.

5-0 out of 5 stars #1 jokers card
i'm a big ICP fan. out of all six joker cards this one was the best. the songs "Chiken Huntin'" and "The Show Must Go On" are awesome. even if your not a ICP fan you'll love it. it kicks ass! if you bye it you'll won't stop listening to this. The Riddle Box is wicked and the best!!!!!!!!! ... Read more
